My car side windows had a bad stain. I tried almost all kinds of products to remove it such as paint thinner, glass cleaner, turpentine, and a lot more, but none of them worked. Any suggestion on how to remove it? I was thinking to get my car window changed if I couldn't bear it anymore, which is my last resort. Hope you guys can help me.

There are various mineral deposit removers for automotive surfaces that you might try. You could also try an automotive glass polish with a mechanical buffer. If it really is not coming off, then before replacing the glass consider a glass restoration product that contains cerium oxide and a buffing wheel.

Try water spot remover, its slightly acidic to lift the mineral deposit

Stains on car windows are often caused by minerals like calcium and magnesium in water, as well as chemicals that leave limescale and other mineral deposits. Those stains are basically a mixture of soap, water, acid rain, and other mineral deposits like sodium that are left over.

And because these hard stains are composed of leftover minerals that didnít come off with the water, you can probably think that theyíre hard to clean off!

But you donít need to worry, I have a few tried and true tips to help rid you of those strains!


Vinegar

Vinegar can eat those strains right up because itís so acidic. Fill a spray bottle with white distilled vinegar. You may need a higher concentration of vinegar, so adjust your water-to-vinegar ratio based on how severe the strains are on your window.


Lemon Juice

Lemon Juice can also eat those strains right up because itís also strongly acidic in nature. If you do try this method, itís better to use fresh lemon juice rather than bottled. You can apply it to your windshield with a towel. Or you can just rub the lemon itself on the glass.


Toothpaste

A solution of water and toothpaste can also be used for this purpose. Definitely donít skimp on the water! It will make the mixture easier to spread and helps you save your toothpaste! Apply the paste to your window, allow it to sit, and then clean off with water. After this method, you should also clean your window glass with a traditional glass cleaner and dry it thoroughly.


Lemon or Orange Essential Oils

Lemon or orange essential oils may be easier to find and can help remove strains on your window. They can also prevent future hard water deposit buildups on your windshield and windows. Mix a few drops of the essential oils with water, then apply the solution to your windshield using a soft towel. Allow it to soak and then remove it with a traditional glass cleaner.

I would have to agree that a lot of car owners think that stains are hard to clean off as I'm one of them. After I experience this first hand, I tried some tips yet it didn't remove the stains. Which is why I decided to just bring it to my mechanic. But thanks for sharing these tips to remove the stains. I will definitely try this in the future.
